Anna Williams asks our Lead Receptionist, Natalia Kwiecinska some questions on her native Poland, life, talents and interests.
Where did you grow up? Jurata, in Poland
What’s Jurata like? It’s the most beautiful place in the world. It’s part of a sand peninsula that is 40km long. Only 250 people live in Jurata but there are thousands of visitors in the summer.
What are you enjoying about running reception at TMC? It’s always busy and I get to talk to a lot of people every day. I’ve been a therapist for ten years so I’m learning a lot of new skills now. I’ve been here at TMC for over two years so I can also advise clients and match them up with the right therapist.
And what do you like about TMC in general? It’s super friendly but super professional. And super powerful.
What’s super powerful about it? To a lot of our clients we are superheroes- we have superpowers of healing
What do you do outside of work ?I play the piano- his name is Henry. I’ve played since I was five and it helps to clear my thoughts and go into my own inner world.
Do you have any hidden talents? I have an amazing memory, especially for numbers. I’m like an elephant
Name your three favourite film? Casablanca, Potop (a Polish movie about the Swedish/Polish war in the 17th It’s about five hours long and I know most of the words with my elephant memory), and all of the Rocky movies
Where would you like to travel to? I would like to travel to the places where my favourite books are set- Moscow, Lima, Madrid, St Petersburg, Buenos Aires, and the Amazon river
Imagine you’re writing a book- what’s it about? I would visit all those places and then write a factual book about the places I’d travelled to. I’d experience and write about specific places, for example the theatre in St Petersburg where Tchaikovsky showed his ballets.
Do you have any pets? No.
Would you like one? I’d like a horse to ride. Or a whale.
Tell me a joke. I can’t, I don’t know any that aren’t rude!
